Rare French Art Deco Cubist Figural Bronze Statue
Sculptor: Sibylle May (signed)
Circa 1925, France

 

Fabulous and rare, signed Art Deco period bronze Nude of a woman, outstretched on her knees,
draped in a fabric across her knee, fanned out in a cubist manner. Her 1920's style flapper 'bob'
hairstyle is also sculpted in a cubist manner. She has an Egyptian styled look and is a small scale,
ideal for a coffee table, desk or vanity top. An excellent example of the phrase: 'good things come in small packages'. Signed on front of bronze base: Sibylle May, and on side: Ets ALBERT BUISSON. 

Sibylle May was an English sculptor working in France during the inter-war years. 
May's style was clean, spare, pared down, highly stylised, with a hint of Cubism.
May was a member of the La Stele and L' Evolution Groups.

She executed a number of bronzes and ceramics which were edited by the firm of
Arthur Goldscheider in Paris and Edouard Cazaux (1889-1974). L'Evolution was an artist's
society that exhibited at the Arts Decoratifs Exposition in Paris in 1925.  
Some of her angular ceramic figures were decorated in subtle polychrome
hues by her friend and fellow member of the La Stele group, Edouard Cazaux. 

Dimensions: 8 3/8" wide, 5 1/2" high, 3 1/4" deep.

Condition: In excellent original condition. Shown (and found) without a base,
if you desire, we can have a new marble base made for her.

Item # DAS47: Price: $ 6,500.
